I went to Outsidelands this weekend, and now I must eat kale for five weeks to atone. Do you see this?
This is bacon in a cup. It’s from a local restaurant called Straw, which specializes in carnival food. The bacon is resting on an unctuous swirl of peanut butter and chocolate syrup. You’re supposed to mix it up like so:
And then you ingest it. I’m pretty sure it looks like that inside your body for months to come. Delicious, I mean. It’s like some gourmet version of the power-goo triathletes eat just before they have heart attacks.
This is a pork sandwich from Maverick. I asked for one with extra pork and a side of shirtless-man torso.
Then, just to keep things kosher, I had some oysters and a glass of Pinot Grigio. As I was eating these, I thought, “Am I seriously eating raw oysters at an outdoor music festival in August? This seems ill advised.” But I suffered no ill effects. Beyond the extra ten pounds, I mean. Worth it.
The rest of what I ate is up on Foodspotting. Also, there were some bands.
